HOLMDEL - With children across the Garden State returning to school for another year, one Holmdel family is creating a unique and healthy back-to-school snack to help take on the day.

Monica and Rick Guarnaccia, co-owners of Wave Bar, have come up with a way to pack a snack that brings more vegetables and fruits into their kids' diets.

"We have active kids and we were frankly disappointed in the amount of healthy snacks that were available in the market place," Rick says.

Each Wave Bar includes a half serving of vegetables and a half serving of fruit, but the flavor is 100 percent delicious, according to Rick.

The family says the idea grew into a business when the girls' friends started asking for samples at school.

Wave Bar is new to stores and can be found at small specialty stores such as Dearborn Markets in Holmdel and Delicious Orchards in Colts Neck.
